Good evening! My blog is 4 years old this week, time flies.
I hope everyone is pleased with their progress on holiday preparations. I am not done. Outside is, but inside has a long way to go!
Tonight I am using Villeroy and Boch Toy's Fantasy.
Notice all the detail, fluted edges and red trim.
I used a green glass charger, and green and red napkin ringed with pip berries and mini pine cones. It is a small candle ring, .50 from Cmas Tree Shop a few years ago.
The soup bowl has a snowman scene done in coordinating colors.
The tablecloth is an off white with a muted red pattern. It is lined and has a cording edge. It was 5.00 in Savers.
The green flatware is from World Market, and the green BEE glasses are from Cmas Tree Shops, 1.00
Little red gift boxes hold the name card.
Since the china pattern is toys, I used a mini red flyer tricycle on some fresh greens as the centerpiece.
Two little felt bendable elves are riding. I got them in PB last year after Cmas, for 1.00 each.
A matching boot cookie jar from V&B.
There is amazing detail on the toys.
There used to be a Villeroy and Boch outlet here in Southampton.
They had a basement clearance area, and I would wait for the 75 off after Christmas.
75% off the lowest price...I sure miss that store!
My tip for Yvonne's TTT party is about windows.
I used heavy weight Dansk dish towels to make this for the kitchen window for Christmas.
I sewed a co ordinating stripe with the check, then added tassel to the point. I only have one large window in the kitchen, so it works for me!
I haven't found the doo dads I usually put on the window sill, they must be in the next bin!
It looks festive with my kitchen tree. Little copper pot ornaments and gingerbread boys from WS Outlet.
This is something easy I make often. Puff pastry cut with a rolling lattice tool, filled with a poached pear half, stuffed with cinnamon and nuts.
I didn't want to send you away hungry!
